Angry Plex Media Server Won't Start On Boot

Hey guys,

So here's what happened:

Everything was working fine, my rc.plexmediaserver was starting on boot, however then I upgraded the package to the lastest version, which seemed to have worked but would not start on boot even though chmod a+x /etc/rc.d/rc.plexmediaserver was invoked. I uninstalled the package and deleted /var/lib/plexmedia server.

I then reinstalled the original package from Slackbuilds,org and for the life of me I cannot get my Plex server to start when I boot my machine automatically.

I can manually start this service just fine, not sure what the heck is going on here :/

I'm on Slackware64 14.2, multilib on 4.4.75 kernel version.

Thanks in advance,
